New to Theatres This Weekend: Onward, The Way Back, First Cow


Pixar’s latest film Onward leads this week’s new releases in theatres and is expected to top the box office without too much trouble although it could face some trouble internationally from the coronavirus. This is their first original movie after a couple of huge sequels so it is expected to open on the lower end of the Pixar spectrum although reviews have been mostly positive. Also in wide release we have the sports drama The Way Back starring Ben Affleck while Focus will expand Emma. to 1500 screens. In select theatres, A24 will release Kelly Reichardt’s latest film First Cow and Apple will release their former awards season hopeful The Banker starring Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie was delayed last year due to sexual abuse allegations against the subject’s son. What will you be watching this weekend?
